CMP – Client Money Protection

CMP – Client Money Protection – How important is it?

Baroness Hayter is pushing the Government as to whether it will make CMP insurance mandatory for all lettings agents.

Hayter, who led a State-backed review into the prospects of such a scheme at the end of last year, issued a written parliamentary question asking about government action.

Her question, suggesting that ministers are dragging their heels, was answered this week by Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth, the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Communities and Local Government.

He said: “The Government encourages letting and management agents to join Client Money Protection schemes and encourages landlords and tenants to choose agents with Client Money Protection via the SafeAgent kitemark.”

He also cited Baroness Hayter’s own work, adding that the report is still being reviewed by ministers and would be responded to “in due course”.

    Stuarts offer the most efficient service I have experienced by far, but with an added personal touch. They are a close team and this produces excellent results in terms of clear communication and process. They are also just warm and kind individuals who go out of their way to make your life easier. I'll always be grateful for them taking the stress out of my move. I would never go anywhere else!

    We moved to U.K in 2015 and it was our first rented property. The whole process was carried out in friendly and smooth way. We rented the property for more than 2 yrs and we were facilitated and dealt in very effective, efficient and professional way. Unfortunately land lord decided to sale the property so we have to find a new place. The move out process is as smooth and clearly communicated as the move in was. We would certainly recommend Stuart properties and would love to seek their assistance in future. Special thanks to Colin and his team who were always there for us. Warm personal regards from our family!

    We lived in a property let by Stuarts for just over two years and there were absolutely no negative experiences with them at all. we had an issue with a shower that was dealt with extremely quickly and the communication between the time we reported the fault and the time it was fixed was outstanding.
    Stuarts delt with any quiries we had very quickly and were quick to reply to any emails that we sent them. As first time renters we had plenty of questions and no matter how small they were always answered in a polite and friendly manner. From start to finish they were great.
